Connie Francis The Singles Collection CD

£3.99

Product description

Connie was the first female singer to succeed against the men of rock'n'roll - and Connie could certainly rock as some of these songs prove. Connie's best up-tempo songs were Lipstick on your collar, Stupid Cupid and Vacation. Everybody's somebody's fool is a brilliant mid-tempo country-flavored song. As good as those hits are, it was as a ballad singer that Connie really did best
Who's sorry now, Among my souvenirs, Together and Carolina moon, four classic ballads that Connie made her own, are not original songs as many assume - they are all covers of songs written in the 1920's, Other classic ballads include Don't break the heart that loves you (only a minor UK hit for Connie but a huge American hit), My happiness (a cover of a 1940's song), Breaking in a brand new broken heart, Mama, My heart has a mind of its own, Many tears ago and Where the boys are.
If you are interested in rock'n'roll music of the late fifties and early sixties, Connie's music should appeal to you. Several compilations are available (including double CD's and boxed sets) but some are re-recordings while others miss out essential songs. This compilation contains all of Connie's British chart hits including both sides of her two double-sided singles. As such, it is the strongest single CD ever released in the UK.
